Patient's Query

Dear Doctor,

I have dandruff problem and it is causing massive hair fall.

Kindly suggest me any Ayurvedic procedure or medicine for a cure.

Answered by Dr. Atul Bhatla


Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are many reasons for dandruff. Close examination can help diagnose the exact reason for dandruff. I am sharing some steps which usually help cure dandruff.

  • Use MahaBhringraj Oil (any good brand) at night to massage scalp with finger tips. Saturate the scalp.
  • On the next morning, use herbal shampoo with minimal preservatives and chemicals. Rinse thoroughly afterwards. Remains of shampoo on the scalp also lead to white flakes on scalp.
  • Avoid using conditioner, in fact you will not need it if you once started using Maha Bhringraj Oil as said above.
  • Avoid using hair dryer.
  • Brush your hair regularly to remove any dead tissues.
  • In routine use a light refined oil.

If dandruff still persist, consult a dermatologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/dermatologist

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
